Spread the love

The ancient and abiding art of Poetry is the essence of language and the currency of the mind, thereby, nurturing our Languages, Social Fabric, Music, Art, and Culture.

It is to our fortune and honour that Jamaica’s premiere annual poetry festival, Poetry in Motion, is the longest running and most successful poetry annual poetry event/festival in the colourful history of Jamaica.

Poetry in Motion, which is affectionately called PiM, shall celebrate it’s 15th anniversary on Sunday February 25th at the Manchester Golf Club in the cool, cool hills of Mandeville and we have added several layers of value to it.

The Royal Affair – 15th Anniversary Special – PiM Mandeville Weekend 

Sports and Arts – In light of it’s 15th Anniversary, Poetry in Motion 2018 has developed new celebratory features: Royal Affair Dance Party, dubbed the Ivory Edition on Friday February 23rd also at Manchester Golf Club. It features Simple Touch Sound with DJ Ashile (of RIE FM), DJ Rope Head and DJ Marlon. Sunday February 25th features our flagship event, Poetry in Motion which shall be preceded by a celebratory 9 Hole Golf Tournament beginning at 9 am. This special tournament is a friendly Shotgun Start and a Two Man Best Ball. We will also be having a football tournament.

The PiM 9 Hole Golf Tournament is a charitable venture and all the proceeds shall be presented to Mr Foster in honour of his 50th Year of service at the Manchester Golf Club. This gesture is fitting this long-serving, loyal and dedicated bartender at the Manchester Club. For bookings your spot in the tournament contact Manchester Golf Club Tel 962-2403.

Poetry in Motion which is the brain child of Yasus Afari, celebrates Music, Dance, Comedy, Story Telling, Fashion and Poetry. It is a charitable community festival with a national and international appeal. PiM has sustained it’s reputation of providing the very best in poetry and the entire spectrum of the cultural and performing arts, presenting Clean Intelligent Fun for the Entire Family and Community. PiM 2018 is in support of ‘Friends in Need‘ which is a worthy Mandeville based charity that takes care of street people, thereby advocating our ideals of social-responsibility.

This very important national calendar event is the pride and joy of Mandeville, Central Jamaica and the poetry fraternity as it has helped to nurture, promote and thus ensure the growth of Jamaican Poetree.
